The week is already over for me (yay no Friday classes!) HOW did that happen so fast? Believe me, I’m not complaining because I want the rest of the semester to be over with as soon as possible, but seriously, this was like a new record. This weekend is going to be absolutely jam packed though. This weekend I have lots of homework including a problem set, over 200 pages of reading, and studying for 2 exams. Yikes!


Today was a whirlwind as well. I got up early and had a big cereal bowl for breakfast and then headed to my nutritionist appointment. I sure needed it after these past few weeks—I’ve really been struggling. 



Then I had 3 back-to-back 75 minute classes—my brain is always fried by the end of the afternoon. I packed my usual turkey/laughing cow sandwich, veggies, and an apple. 



WCMN Luna for my snack. I adore these.



I don’t have pictures of dinner because I went to a dinner/lecture by Tom Reen who was Best of Boston Nutritionist in 2007 (whatever that means!). He talked a lot about healthy living in college, and while it was interesting, there was really nothing too groundbreaking. The one thing I did learn was that it is important to eat something within 20 minutes of exercising for optimal absorption, and this is the best time for liquid calories since they are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Post-workout latte? I think so!

We had a “healthy catered meal” for dinner with hummus, pita, and veggie appetizers and a buffet dinner where I chose salad, salmon, brown rice, asparagus, and a roll. Dessert was chocolate covered strawberries. It felt so great to have such a healthy, balanced meal.


The best part of the night was the fact that I WON THE RAFFLE! I rarely win anything but my luck seems to be changing! I won a huge bowl of snacks! This thing was huge and I looked absolutely ridiculous carrying it home!


It included a bunch of Trader Joe’s products: tortilla chips, salsa, crackers, chutney, jam, peanut butter, granola, trail mix, pom juice, iced teas, rice cakes, and dark chocolate. How exciting!

I divided up some of the treats with my friend as a thank-you for coming with me to the event and she wanted to dig in to the peanut butter, crackers, and jam so who was I to deny her that? I’m so used to eating natural peanut butter that this was really strange tasting to me! 

I’m ready for bed! Goodnight!

    I’m glad that the nutritionist appointment went well. I’m sorry to hear that it’s been a rough couple of weeks. I hope you are feeling better.
